Sober Film Critic James Brown100 - The Hateful Eight is an old school film grandly envisioned and executed in a way that only Quentin Tarantino can. It's one damn good movie that may just be an instant classic.

Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine75 - Jennifer Jason Leigh in particular, delivers a stand-out performance as Daisy Domergue, the coarse captive of bounty hunter John Ruth. She conveys an impressive range with body language, even blowing a big wad of snot out of her nose in one memorable moment.
